Walter F. Tickner, D.D.S. Dr. Tickner was born and raised in the Bay Area. He graduated from Acalanes High School and went on to attend the University of California at Berkeley, where he completed his undergraduate studies in the field of paleontology (dinosaurs have BIG teeth). He continued his dental education at UCLA, receiving his dental degree in 1973 after completing an extra year’s training in removable prosthetics (dentures). After graduation, Dr. Tickner returned to the Bay Area and joined a very busy dental practice, specializing in dentures for the next seven years, until opening his private practice in San Leandro in 1980, where he and his staff continue to provide full-service dentistry for adults and seniors four days per week. On Wednesdays, Dr. Tickner works in an Oakland dental clinic, where he serves as a prosthodontist, making dentures and partials for low-income and homeless patients. Dr. Tickner is a member of the San Leandro Chamber of Commerce, the Southern Alameda County Dental Society, the California Dental Association, the American Dental Association. He lives in Berkeley with his wife of 30 years and their three small dogs. His hobbies include hiking, jogging, gardening and fixing things, especially his endlessly challenging drip irrigation system.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
